Paul Reubens tells Jimmy Fallon there's a new Pee-wee movie in the works

Paul Reubens, a.k.a. Pee-wee Herman, made a surprising announcement on The Tonight Show Wednesday.

"I've seen Pee-wee's Big Adventure probably 180 times," Fallon told Reubens. Luckily, Reubens had some good news to share with Fallon about new Pee-wee adventures to come.

When Fallon asked Reubens if there will be a new Pee-wee movie, Reubens said that "there is going to be one" and it's "a week away" from being officially announced. Reubens added that Judd Apatow will produce the new film and they'll start filming in February.
